Description

50 feet from the small parking lot, along the right side of the trail to the Orange Crush cliff (just before it heads steeply up the hill) is this large boulder that kind of looks a bit like a shoe. There were a couple short, previously bolted routes on the tallest portion (pre pad days) put up by John Mallery. There might still be one old anchor bolt. If you use the bolt, make sure you back it up, as it has probably seen better days.

The well traveled Dr. Mallery was one of the early developers to recognized the sport climbing potential of the area and willing to challenge ossified traditions.

Getting There

From the small parking lot take the trail towards Orange Crush and it will be along the trail, on your right, just before the trail really starts heading up the hill.

Does anybody remember the names of John's bolted lines here or some history? I asked Den Dana (the early Rumney guidebook author) and he keyed me into the fact that there were two bolted lines, not just one, but he didn't remember any names. Dec 12, 2014
